    Is it possible to install a sako-type extractor on a Savage bolt?

    Thanks.

    No.

    Are you having some problems with your Savage extractor?

    There are a couple thinks that can be done to improve them.

    Now that Savage has changed to a centerfeed there are very few problems, feeding, extracting, or ejecting rounds.


    You'll gain the most improvement in your Savage action by sending it and $125 to Sharp Shooter Supply for a time and true.

    Fred makes sure your action and nut is square to the action threads and makes sure the trigger, camming, and cocking are all timed properly.

    Thanks for the help, I was kinda thinking of doing that anyway (def now lol). I was also looking at his sporter style stock, if the rifle doesn't come with the accustock.

    I'm also a big fan of the Stockade stocks.
